The Snow Came Softly Down

Availability: Ready to download

"Small but perfectly formed, The Snow Came Softly Down by Brian J. Showers is a delightfully-produced little chapbook with its own ribbon marker and simple but effective line drawings by Duane Spurlock, containing 'A Tale Concerning Ghosts'. You would expect from this, and from the old-fashioned typeface, that it is set in a more innocent era, and so it proves. M.R. James "Small but perfectly formed, The Snow Came Softly Down by Brian J. Showers is a delightfully-produced little chapbook with its own ribbon marker and simple but effective line drawings by Duane Spurlock, containing 'A Tale Concerning Ghosts'. You would expect from this, and from the old-fashioned typeface, that it is set in a more innocent era, and so it proves. M.R. James would probably disapprove of the decidedly benign spooks, but the tale cannot be faulted for atmosphere--especially the protagonist's scary walk through the freezing woods on Christmas Eve. If I call the tone of the story 'Dickensian' it is meant as a compliment, evoking as it does those semi-mythical White Yuletides depicted on a certain type of Christmas card... but with added creepiness. Wordsworth’s poem 'Lucy Gray', possibly an inspiration to the tale and certainly complementing it, rounds off this charming book."
